Pensioner Jailed For Playing Music Too Loud Dies Aged 83

Pensioner Jailed For Playing Music Too Loud Dies Aged 83

A pensioner who was jailed for playing classical music too loud has died aged 83.

Ian Trainer, from Aintree, Merseyside, was jailed for 24 weeks on 6 February for breaching a restraining order and was locked up once again after complaints he continued to breach the order upon his release.

The order - issued last year - stated he couldn't play 'any audio at a volume above normal talking level' between the hours of 9am and 10pm after complaints from neighbours.

The Ministry Of Justice has confirmed to LADbible that Trainer has died.

A Prison Service spokesman said: "HMP Liverpool prisoner Ian Trainer died in hospital on 23 November.

"The Prisons and Probation Ombudsman has been informed."

The spokesman did not confirm the cause of Trainer's death, stating it was a matter for the coroner.

Officers were called to Trainer's home in December last year following a noise complaint by his neighbour, who claimed 'noise pollution' had been emitted from his home for years.

When he was arrested for breaching a condition of his restraining order, he told officers: "I like playing music at a level I enjoy."

He subsequently argued in court in February that he was unwell and could only hear in one ear, while the steroids he took for a medical condition made headphones too uncomfortable to wear.

Giving evidence, his neighbour, Thomas Thompson, said: "It's not just one day of the week, it's every day of the week.

"I go out early morning and stay out until late afternoon to avoid the noise.

"It's just unbelievable at times."

After a recess, Trainer returned to the courtroom, pointed to his ankle and said 'Put the ball and chain on me,' according to the Liverpool Echo.

The judge ruled that Trainer 'played music at a level that caused distress' and 'knew full well' what he was doing.

He was sentenced to 24 weeks and ordered to pay court costs of £600 ($800), and a further victim surcharge to Mr Thompson of £122 ($162).

Trainer appeared at Liverpool Crown Court via video-link in June from prison having been accused of breaching his restraining order once again by playing music at a volume above 65 decibels.

He pleaded not guilty, describing the allegations as 'malicious lies'.

The court told LADbible the jury were unable to reach a verdict and a retrial had been scheduled for the week commencing 29 March next year.
